It’s funny how some people truly believe that eating healthy means never, ever even tasting (or smelling. Or seeing) a teeny, tiny, miniscule, little piece of sugary/deep fried/cheesy anything. Pray tell me how is that even possible? You only live once, and life is too damn short to spend it without splurging on whatever the hell you feel like eating every now and then.
I saw a similar list on Sugar Plum and liked the concept. This is my personal favourite-unhealthy-food list, so it doesn’t include much cheese. Or mayonnaise. Or pickles. Yeah, I’m a picky eater, and now you know.
Without further ado, here are my top ten binge worthy foods:
1- French fries
Golden, crispy on the outside and fluffy on the inside. Preferably from McDonald’s.
Whether they’re gluey thin patties from McDonald’s and Burger King or real deal thick, juicy, grease-oozing gourmet ones. I love them all equally *starry eyes*.
Sure, pizza doesn’t necessarily have to be unhealthy, but once in a while I need an extra-large, thick crust (stuffed if possible), double extra cheese pizza with a side of (also very cheesy) garlic bread from a fast food chain. And nothing less will do.
4- Rice and potatoes
Yes, rice and potatoes. Both at the same time. My grandmother’s fluffy white rice topped with her baked potatoes and onions in tomato sauce. That’s my childhood, right there.
Cake in general. I like cake. A lot.
Now I get why Joey risked getting shot to save a meatball sub. Anything put inside a loaf of soft white (no, not whole what) bread instantly becomes delectable.
7- Ramadan desserts
Kunafa? Check. Baklawa? Check. Katayef? Big fat check. It’s one month people. Enjoy it.
8- Chinese food
While easy to make healthy, the deep fried aspect of it often gets too appealing. Especially after two hours of mall hopping.
Sure, I could eat pasta every day and not go overboard. But sometimes I need to get my full fix, and that means devouring three or four huge plates of it until I can eat no more (but I’ll probably still have a few more bites).
10- Ramen noodles
I’m ashamed to say that every couple of weeks, I wake up with a vicious desire to have a very large bowl of unhealthy, sodium-filled, preservative-ful, devoid-of-any-nutrients chicken curry flavoured ramen noodles for breakfast.
11- Chicken nuggets (Yes, 11. It’s MY list and I can add one more if I want:D)
I love, love, love chicken nuggets. ‘Nuff said.
